Congrats to the Houghton Middle School Eco Challenge team! Their "Land and Water" Project for the Lexus Scholastic Eco Challenge has advanced to the final (NATIONAL) round of the competition! Only 7 other middle school teams in the country will proceed to this last round!
Thanks to runoff pollution from the excessive nutrients, particularly phosphorus and nitrogen, dead zones with little to no oxygen are growing. Aquatic conditions like this can suffocate and kill fish and other marine life.
